Fascinating immediate response from British author, John Lind, to the issuance of the Declaration of Independence by the Americans. In it, he quotes in full each of the twenty-eight objections to the policies of the British Crown and responds with the full weight of that renowned British sarcasm, acidic wit, and venom.
Lind, John [1737-1781]. An Answer to the Declaration of the American Congress. Printed for T. Cadell in the Strand; J. Walter, Charingcross; and T. Sewell, near the Royal Exchange. 1776. 132pp.
Textually complete, beginning with the half title, removed from a sammelband at some point and with binding all but fully deteriorated. Importantly, the margins are full. There are typographically set marginal notes throughout which are often lost in gathered examples of this work. Faint tide marks toward rear of text block. Rare.
